UPDATE by Masa JA0RQV in 3D2 

I’m so sorry to announce that I finally had to decide to withdraw from Fiji and return to Japan on 14th June 2021 since my flight from 3D2 to A35 cannot be approved by Tongan government, even after I spent two months waiting for their decision. It is very unfortunate but due to Covid-19 pandemic in Fiji. I am planning to retry to enter Tonga in August or September this year via ZL. 

APRIL 2, 2021 – Masa, JA0RQV will QRV again from Tongatapu (OC-049) as A35JP from May to October 2021.

This time, he will be stationed there as a resident supervisor of an international cooperation project.

  • Band/Mode: 80m-6m. CW, SSB, FT8.
  • Equipment: IC-7300 100W/Vertical.
  • QSL info: LoTW/Club Log.

During the period, if possible, he will try to activate some of the outer islands again such as Niuatoputapu (OC-191), Niuafo’ou (OC-123), Vava’u (OC-064) and Ha’apai (OC-169). More details announced once decided.
